After the 2019 season, the Chicago Bears placed more priority on improving the tight end position than any other spot on the roster.
They made Jimmy Graham the first veteran tight end to sign with a new team in free agency and gave him the biggest deal of any free agent tight end last year. They added Demetrius Harris, who had played for Bears coach Matt Nagy in Kansas City. They used their top draft pick (No. 43) to make Cole Kmet the first tight end off the board in the 2020 draft. They brought back J.P. Holtz and Jesper Horsetd and added so many other prospects that they had as many as 10 tight ends under contract by late spring.
